Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta says he will present the 2023 Budget in Parliament next week.

The Minister’s comment is coming at a time when some Majority MPs have threatened to boycott the 2023 budget statement if he (Finance Minister) is not sacked.

In an interview with JoyNews’ Parliamentary Correspondent, Kwaku Asante shortly after he had testified before the Adhoc Committee hearing the censure motion, Ken Ofori-Atta said “yeah, expect so. That seems to be a weird question.”

The Journalist asked whether he will be the one to present the 2023 budget.

According to Ken Ofori-Atta, although the hearing so far has been cumbersome, he believes it is “democracy in play.”

 

 

It would be recalled that the NPP MPs in a press conference on Tuesday, October 25 stated that they are displeased with the management of the economy under Ken Ofori-Atta.

“It’s not only the budget that we will boycott, we will no longer be a part of any government business. That is the position we have taken. It starts from now,” leader of the rebel NPP MPs, Andy Appiah-Kubi, said.

“Ofori-Atta is not the only one with knowledge, he must go. I can assure you, we will not backtrack on our decision. If the President refuses to sack him, it’s up to him,” he added.

According to Deputy Majority Leader, Alexander Afenyo-Markin, the 2023 budget statement will be presented on November 24. The budget was earlier scheduled to be presented on November 15,2022.
